Now I am back in LA with my beautiful wife trying to figure out how to get my real life Haunted House movie (Susan directing), my Dali film (Roger Avary directing) and Faces of Death movie (JT Petty) going while setting up new projects, including another robot movie that should be pretty spiffy.
I don't come back to this place often to post, though I read all the time. I value all the pals I have made on here (you know who you are). At the same time we have not allowed a new member in 6 months, for no good reason other than the spambots sign up 40 accounts a day. No fooling. Thanks for that, Bowspearer you ****.
So I come home and read today and you know what? **** all of you who are haters. No, not haters. **** all of you who think you know better. "Oh woe is me the comic relief really took me out of the movie." "Oh golly, I need to be ****ing spoonfed just HOW Bumblebee got captured." Etc etc.
These movies were NEVER going to be what you wanted them to be. What you wanted was an animated movie that played to the hardcore fan base. What you got was three BILLION dollar blockbusters that expanded the fan base and made it cool again. That made Joe in the street go "Yeah, loved that!"
To read the ongoing ******** EIGHT years after we started this? Just bite me and you know who you are.
What happens next? Certainly not a reboot. We haven't lost the Transformers. They didn't grow up or become expensive like Toby Maguire. I don't know what happens next. I'm pretty sure there will be a second trilogy. I am pretty sure it will kick ass. And I am pretty sure some of you will hate it because it wasn't all bots.
Anyone going to SDCC? Stay tuned to hear about the coolest thing at the Con that Don and Susan might be doing.
